What's your dirty little secret?
Mine is that I'm embarrassingly lazy with my skincare--give me the simplest regimen possible. I'm actually really low maintenance, almost to a fault. I'm a busy person with little time and patience for complicated skin products, but alas, I have problematic combination skin. What's a sometimes-oily, sometimes-dry, acne-prone girl to do?
Introducing Bioré Baking Soda Pore Cleanser + Cleansing Scrub. These bad boys tackle all my issues, down to my pores. I've been anything but silent about my skin issues--I grew up with bad acne, and while it's gone away in my adulthood, I still get random zits and have transitioned from very oily skin to confusing combination skin.
Bioré's Baking Soda Pore Cleanser is gentle enough for everyday use, deep-cleaning without overdrying (when your skin is dry, it overcompensates by producing even more sebum, meaning you'll have an even oilier face than when you started!).
And then we have the Bioré Baking Soda Cleansing Scrub to exfoliate your face for smoother, cleaner skin. This baby arrives dry in a cool pop-top bottle, activating with water and naturally dissolving as you scrub to avoid over-scrubbing. You can add more water for a gentler scrub, or more product for a heavier duty scrub.
These two are the only facial cleansers I've been using...and it doesn't hurt that they smell THE BEST ever. Click the links below to clean up your act, too.
